Gianni Truvianni's "South Africa 2010", Poetic Justice As Germany Humbles England By 4-1

In 1966 England beat Germany by 4-2 in the final with two overtime goals which by all means should not have counted but were given as goals which at the end of the day is the only thing that really matters. England’s fourth goal on that day coming after the game had ended and fans were coming on to field, this leading German players to believe the game was in fact over as Hurst got his third for the day. As for the third English goal on that day which was also scored by Hurst, it is now known thanks to computer replays that the ball did not actually cross the plain of the goal. It being with this in mind that I believe that where in 1966 they won by scoring two goals which in fact should not have counted, it is now that they have lost by scoring a goal that should have counted. I also being of the opinion that it would be unfair to blame the referee. This being the case since he did not have the advantage of instant replay and even if he had it would not have made any difference as FIFA has not allowed world cups to go beyond the dark ages of having to relay on the eyes of one man.

As for the game, it started with both teams going for a win in the same way they had done in their previous four world cup encounters. All of which strangely enough coming in different rounds of the world cup and ending in draws that required two of them to be settled in overtime and one by penalties. Germany and England creating opportunities yet it would be Germany to draw first blood when Klose just 19 minutes in the match gave his side the lead. Klose for his part scoring, his 12 world cup goal which leaves him tied with Brazil’s Pele.

The game would continue as if it were going to be goals from end to end with England even coming close on a play in which the German defense had to clear the ball almost on its own line yet Germany would get a second. This goal coming thanks to Podolski, who after taking a pass from Muller was able to beat English goalkeeper, James to give Germany a 2-0 lead. Podolski in a way atoning for his missed penalty against Serbia.

England at this point where down but still far from being out as the pace of the game continued furiously with Lampard even hitting the German post though not scoring yet England was getting closer to their first goal. It finally arriving 36 minutes in to the game when Gerard centered the ball in to the Germany penalty box where Upson headed it past German goalkeeper, Neuer; who can be said to have been partially to blame for Germany conceding their first and only goal of the day.

England had pulled one back and found themselves within striking distance of the Germans and perhaps should have been given a goal when in fact Lampard’s shot broke the plain of the German goal yet though this may have been; what is of consequence in football is only what referee says and not what in fact may have transpired on the field play. Of course, we can argue in favor of instant replies and technology but until it is accepted by FIFA, ours will be to go by the referee’s decision; weather he be right or otherwise. It not even mattering for any practical sense that Lampard’s shot at the 37 mark of the first half in fact when in.

The second half would start with England huffing and puffing at the German defense, who were waiting for them and their predictable attack based on speed and determination though with little if any real skill or ability. Rooney, as always being easily controlled by defenses all too prepared to stop him. England however one could say was unlucky to hit the post for a third time in the match (at least officially) when Lampard repeated the feat yet it would be the Germans to take a 3-1 lead when Muller scored on a counter attack 66 minutes in to the game. This goal taking Germany one ever crucial step closer toward the quarterfinals.

England however despite being down by 3-1 would continue to go forward with everything at their disposal yet with their attacks being weaker and their fatigue getting greater, Germany would get another goal just two minutes after their third. This goal coming off a fast break. It being Muller to get his second for the day and his team’s fourth; to make me think of another Muller with the first name of Gerd.

Germany’s fourth goal would end the match for all intensive purposes, as it was but academic that Germany would go on to beat England for the fourth consecutive time in the world cup yet unlike the previous two times did not need to play beyond the regular 90 minutes. Germany even giving the appearance in the last minutes of the match that they could have added to their lead and to the humiliation of the English.

In conclusion, I would say that Germany showed great play as well as skills in not only being tactically superior to their English rivals but also having something Germans were not previously known to have and that being creativity similar to South Americans. As for England though we can expect their fans to cry about how Lampard’s shot went in and was not given as a goal (as they are still doing so about Maradona’s hand of God goal); the truth is that they would have probably lost even if that goal had been given. The reality being that they were being out played by a better team and a much stronger football nation. Regarding England, I would also add that perhaps they should stop fooling themselves in to the absurd believe that they are a favorite to win every world cup they enter. As the facts are that though they won the world cup in 66 have yet to repeat the feat with their best result since then being a fourth place in Italia 90. England even failing to qualify to the 74,78 and 94 world cups.
